Punta Majahua



 
Short description

Punta Majahua is a residential complex strategically located in a ten thousand square meter piece of land on a peninsula, north of Troncones. The concept of Punta Majahua was designed to create luxurious beachfront residences, with a very organic, and fluid architectural style which would integrate the best way possible to accommodate the site. The masterplan of the project has six buildings with three floors each, and five to eight residences making a total of thirty-nine units, a covered garage area, paddle court, a family swimming pool with a semi olympic lap lane, an administrative office, a gym, staffing and service area, orchards for the resident’s consumption, and green areas. The materials used on this project are what is normally used in the traditional Zihuantanejo costal style, including masonry walls, bamboo, dry palm branches for the gazebos and palapas, river Stones for the ornamentation of rugs and baseboards in the interiors, bush hammered marble floors, parota wood, and bamboo carpentry. The landscaping of the project was based on the analysis and understanding of the local ecosystem, due to the scarcity of water in the region. It is worth mentioning that the project has it's very own residual water treatment plant, hence reusing the water to water to water the plants. This means that grey water is used to feed the plants, which thrive in such conditions.
